Finding ways in
At Greenbelt, we punch well above our weight when it comes to the richness and diversity of our programming. So much to see, do and be part of. Sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming. How do you even start? Well, we’ve gathered together some thoughts for you – gems from across the programme picked out and highlighted and organised together so there’s some sort of pattern.Find your way in here
Young at heart
Greenbelt is a great place for teenagers. It’s got that perfect mix of freedom and safety. Young people can feel completely at home at the festival – making their own way around, seeing the things they want to see. But we also provide a youth chill-out space and workshop venue to act as a safe haven and base for the weekend. See the programme for yourself here.Download the Youth Guide
Easy to get to
Greenbelt takes place in the beautiful Grade I-listed parkland at Boughton house. Despite feeling far away from the madding crowd, traffic and town, the site is easy to reach. We run a shuttle bus from Kettering Train Station (only a few miles from site and an hour out of London) and the A14 is only a few miles away, too – connecting Greenbelt to the M1, M6, A1 and so on.Plan your journey
Greenbelt is so much more than a festival lineup poster can convey. It’s an experience, a happening. But we understand that a lineup poster can be a helpful starting point – something to share, excite, a prompt to find out more. So we’ve produced a range of downloadable, sharable and printable posters this year – genre-by-genre, day-by-day, the children’s and family programme, and our brand new Amal bill, too.See the lineup posters here

For me, as a British Muslim, Greenbelt is a spiritual home …
Greenbelt is unique in so far as it’s a festival that nourishes the spectrum of human experience. It’s not just a reverie of licentiousness, but it nourishes the spirit, intellect and soul of artists and attendees.
I can only describe Greenbelt as a family, as a home …
Performing at Greenbelt is one of the highlights of my career, one of the most memorable gigs I’ve ever done. The vibe in the audience. the interaction. Just … love!
I walked out and found myself saying: "Salaam Alaykum.” And they all came back with "wa-Alaykum Salaam.” And that made me feel totally welcome.
Have to say, Greenbelt totally surprised me... after Glastonbury, my favourite festival this year
I believe in dialogue, and that’s what Greenbelt is all about
People here are very questioning, not merely of other people, but of their own thoughts and beliefs too.
Greenbelt is a mind-opening event.
It’s extremely welcoming. It’s easy for people to come along and feel at home. Wherever they come from.
Greenbelt is part of my mental furniture.
What a beautiful peaceful festival, filled with sensitive spirited folks.
